Abdo was an amazing driver, super friendly, informative and had great stop off locations for a quick look at the scenery (which you don’t want to miss!). The journey is long (as expected) but we had plenty of opportunities to stretch our legs and get out of the car just to look around and the car is super clean.

The kasbah Haddou UNESCO stop is as pretty as it looks in the photos. We had a local guide Lahsen (an artist) who’s family lived there so it felt very authentic. We learnt quite a lot about their culture, as well as their unique building techniques - I’d recommend this stop for sure as he was a font of knowledge.

The desert was the highlight for me. It was magical, from the pick up with our guide Mohan (not sure how to spell his name!) who was the friendliest man, checked on us regularly and took lots of photos for us. To the camels who were sweet and very calm. The music at night was fun and we had our go with the instruments. Nothing compares to the sunset and sunrise which were breathtaking, definitely force yourself to wake up for the sunrise! We were expecting a very bare bones dinner but the tagine was the best thing we’d ever tasted! It set the bar impossibly high in our opinion.

Would recommend this tour for a taste of the desert and a look around the different landscapes Morrocco outside of Marrakech. The nicest, friendliest team of guys!

Thank youuuuu 😊

Really good experience with Yussef as our driver. Expect a lot of the trip of riding in a comfy bus with AC. All the restaurants we ate at were great around 12 euro per meal. The camel rides were amazing packed with a nice homemade dinner and then a bonfire as we got to experience dancing and drumming by the people we stayed with. We ended the night with stargazing and woke up for the sunset. If you only have 2 days to do an adventure in Marrakech this is the best one!

We booked this very last minute as we were struggling to choose between so many options of trips/companies to go to the desert with. I’m happy to say I can’t recommend Hamin’s trip more.

It is a very long drive but Hamin did many stops along the way to break up the journey. He was really accommodating to our needs and we learnt so much about Moroccan culture through speaking to him along the way.

The night in the desert was unforgettable and the camp was so beautiful and luxurious. All of the guides and locals there were so friendly and because of this we had such a special evening.

The food at the camp was delicious and really authentic, we were welcomed with mint tea and the offer of a cool shower before dinner. Exceeded our expectations in every way, thank you!

It was a long drive to get to Zagora from Marrakech but Houssine made the trip comfortable with appropriate stops. We stopped at the Ben Al Haddou a UNESCO heritage site where many movies were shot including Gladiator and Game of Thrones. A local guide brought us around the site. After that we journey to Zagora where we had a camel ride to our tents. Ayob and Idris were helpful in making our stay comfortable. We had good food, good local music around a campfire and a good sleep. In the morning we woke up and trekked our way up a nearby hill for sunrise. We then had breakfast and took a camel ride back to our van where Houssine is there waiting. Houssine then drove us back to Marrakech. His professionalism is to be commended as he frequently ensures that we are comfortable throughout the journey.

If you are short on time this maybe the one to go. Note that there are two tent sites in the area, one with en-suite bathrooms and one with shared bathrooms.

The tour was an amazing experience during our trip to Morocco. Even though it is an intense ride through rocky roads the sceneries are breathtaking and all is worth it as you get to experience the sahara desert on the back of a Camel. Youssef, our driver, made the trip even better with facts about the places along the ride and many stops for panoramic photos. He was also a very warm and friendly person. Even the refreshment stops are interesting with fun characters, shops, sceneries and amazing coffee. One note for future travelers is that you should make sure to have whatsapp as it is the way they contact you for pickup and the itinerary before you start the trip. Also during the camel ride and the overnight stay at the camp (which is icredible to say the least) you leave your bigger luggage with the driver at the van and you carry what you need for the night on the camel. Ando was a great choice as the driver, the ride, the restaurant along the way and of course the great guys at the berber camp elevate the experience. Waking to see the sunrise in the dunes is an once in a lifetime memory!

We made a two days trip for Zagora Desert from Marrakech. Youssef was our driver for the trip and it was very excellent, he made many breaks for beautiful panorama photos and stops for toilet. In Zagora we made a Trip with camels to arrive to the camp and we spend there the night. The camp was fantastic and the people there were fantastic: they made dance us around a fire with characteristics African music and bring us the a hill top in order to take a sunrise photo.In conclusion it’s possible only to use beautiful words for Youssef and the Camp people for they ability to make us spend a fantastic trip Zagora Desert

P.S. An important thing to remember is to preparare some backpack to spend the night in the camp because it’s forbidden to bring the luggages.

Had a fantastic time on this trip. Our driver Youssef went above and beyond and made the trip even better. I normally get carsick rather easily, however this was no problem as Youssef is an amazing driver. He would stop whenever we needed, when we needed to use a bathroom or take pictures, while somehow keeping us on schedule to see the sunset in Sahara.

Our driver/guide Mohamed Patat was amazing! He explained where we were and kept us in the loop about what we were doing next every step of the way. He was happy to let our group decide if we wanted to spend less or more time at certain spots and made sure we had time to take photos at some of the most notable points on the way. 7 hours sounds like a long time to be driving but with the frequent photo/toilet/water stops, the time flew by. The visit to Ait Ben Haddou was particularly amazing as we had a guide taking us round and giving us interesting insights into the place.

The desert camping itself was also incredible. The minibus was parked by a road and then we travelled by camel for about an hour to get to the camp. To be honest, one hour was a good amount of time on the camels as we found our legs and butts had just about had enough by then! We had free time after arriving to climb the dunes and watch the sunset and then had some traditional tea and snacks with one of the guides before dinner. The camp itself is very well-established. Our tents were very comfortable with proper bed frames and sheets and there were good bathroom facilities with toilets and showers featuring hot and cold water.

Overall an amazing experience which was well worth the money!

The journey was simply magical! Thank you to our wonderful driver who stopped at the most beautiful locations on the way to the desert! We also wanted to take a picture in the poppy field, and the driver fulfilled our little dream without any problems! The camp was very comfortable, the dinner was insanely delicious-tagine is my favorite dish now. Sunsets on the dunes deserve special attention, it was very beautiful and unforgettable. And at night we saw the most starry sky in our lives. Thank you to the guides, the driver, the Cheerful Bedouins for their drumming around the campfire. And to the local Moroccans for the fun company. Definitely one of the best travel experiences!🧡

We come back today from our trip and we cannot stay happiest,
Everything was incredible,
First, pick up with our driver kiki in our hotel he type us 5 minutes before to arrive to make sure everything was in order, after jump in at the van, he was super fun and knowledgeable during the full days that he was with us, taking care of our staff and helping us in all that he can. Amazing guy. It is a long ride in 2 days but he make that time runs with his jokes. After that we were visiting atlas mountains and the best for us was the time with camels in the camp. We booked the most expensive option but it deserves. Our room was incredible. You never expect to see something like this in the desert. Sunrise was so cool, it is an experience that you must to do it at least one time in your life, the guys of the camp are great and really helpful. Food was amazing. We are already planing our next tour with them. Best choice ever.
